I have observed an interesting choice that I have practiced in situations that I have approached with some uncertainty – old self. That observation is – I would rather ask for forgiveness than ask permission. In a way, I have had a certain arrogance about taking that approach. But when I think about it, it is a very self serving approach, serving the ‘self’ instead of being in service to or benefiting others.
And the question I ask myself, after practicing the above and, seemingly, working so hard is – where is my reward? Where is the abundance?
It has been an interesting turn of thought, this journey with the Master Key Experience. Having busted myself for my selfishness, correcting my course, and observing my growth, I am delighted to give myself permission to believe my Definite Major Purpose. In doing so, my eyes are open to abundance beyond the tangible, self-serving kind. I am filled with excitement to see and absorb all that surrounds me and is within me. I have given myself permission to KNOW that it is my purpose and I am nature’s greatest miracle. My desire is not self-centered but others centered and I wish to share my observations with all whom I cross paths.
I am granting myself permission to “be so interested in (my) thought, so engrossed in (my) subject, as to be conscious of nothing else. Such concentration leads to intuitive perception and immediate insight into the nature of the object concentrated upon.” Haanel 17:6
“All knowledge is the result of concentration of this kind; it is thus that the secrets of Heaven and Earth have been wrested; it is thus that the mind becomes a magnet and the desire to know draws the knowledge, irresistibly attracts it, make it your own.” Haanel 17:7
With permission, I sink deep into thoughts of my blissful world within and emerge grateful for the abundance that surrounds me.
All with a happy knack!
